Appointment of a new volunteer Executive Director of the Cathedrals’ Workshop Fellowship ‘A senior volunteering opportunity’

Cathedrals’ Workshop Fellowship (CWF) comprises nine cathedrals – Canterbury, Durham, Exeter, Gloucester, Lincoln, Salisbury, Winchester, Worcester, and York, all with their own conservation and repair teams. The cathedrals collaborate with the University of Gloucestershire to provide highly successful work-based training and education for their craftspeople. The two-year Foundation degree programme leads to the award of the CWF Foundation degree (Arts) in Applied Historic Building Conservation and Repair.

Supported by a dedicated team of cathedral professionals as Module Leaders and Tutors, and a higher education consultant as Academic Programme Manager, the CWF Executive Director provides the leadership and coordination necessary to achieve ongoing success for the Fellowship. To date, 38 graduates have completed the programme from 5 cohorts and recruitment for the September 2019 – July 2021 student cohort is complete; it includes, for the first time, two students from commercial companies in the built heritage sector.

Working primarily from home, this is an unpaid role requiring a flexible commitment of approximately two days a week throughout the year (with university style breaks), for an initial period of three years, which may be extendable. Expenses for travel and subsistence (primarily to visit CWF cathedrals and attend management meetings) are paid. The current incumbent has successfully overseen the development of the Fellowship for 9 years and plans to retire by early 2020, and potential successors are sought.

Applicants are invited to forward their CV with a short covering note to Adrian Munns OBE at: (copied to their cathedral Chief Operating Officer) by 13 September 2019. All applications will be acknowledged.
